Wine and Cheese Event 2/12/2011

Dear QUISCO members, QUISCO-philles and associated wonderful people,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the very first QUISCO Wine and Cheese Event, on Friday, 2nd December 2011, at University of Edinburgh’s Informatics Forum. The Event will commence at 5pm at the 4th floor miniforum. Kids, partners, friends are most welcome to join!

Mission and vision: The idea is to institutionalise this event every first Friday of the month, where quantum and non-quantum people can socialize, discuss, and enjoy great wine and cheese in a very informal friendly atmosphere:
Students: you get to bug your supervisors
Supervisors: you get to converse your students
Researchers in general: mingle, discuss, expand your interests and start new collaborations!

During the course of the first event we will also brainstorm a bit about the actual format of the Events to come, based on the heart’s desires of the attendees.

For the reasons of simplicity, for the first Event, it is a BYOB & C festivity: contribute with a bottle of wine or juice, and ofc. cheese if you can. Please do us the honor and join us to make this fun idea a success!!

For any additional information feel free to contact me at the following e-mail address and cell phone number:
